Until I photographed today's wheel, I hadn't realized how cool it is. It's 13 inches across (not including the tabs), making it even bigger than the tank identification wheel. It's sturdy, too, and has lots of nice, colorful illustrations (drawn from photographs!)
There's a lot to look at on this thing. Check out the spotters looking skyward. On the reverse side are all the crazy squadron insignias. Did you know that the B-26 Marauder had over 1500 parts and 54,000 rivets? There's a plane on here called the "Airacobra". ??
This wheel was made in 1942 by Plane Facts, Inc.
